The evening of 6-25-14 we welcomed Sam, a 22 year old Percheron gelding into the sanctuary! Three years ago, Sam was discarded at the Camelot auction in NJ presumbably because he was blind. Fortunately he was rescued and then adopted into a loving home. Sam has retinal detachment and glaucoma in his left eye, which is white and completely blind. Sight was failing in his right eye as well, but a corneal implant procedure was done to restore his sight, knowing it would only last a few years at best. Six months ago when his implant began to fail, and he started loosing sight in the right eye, his loving home felt their steep terrain was not safe for him to navigate.
Sam is a very sweet and loving boy. He interacts very well with people. He was transitioned into the pasture with Henry and Ruby (also blind) and they have been very welcoming and kind to him. Sam is still trying to figure out his new surroundings and routine, and in the meantime is being showered with attention, love and has a very safe and secure place to now call his forever home!
